Lotterywest Dream Plan Do Mentors

CAN is seeking expressions of interest from suitably experienced and qualified mentors as part of our 2020 Lotterywest Dream Plan Do program. Mentors will work closely with culturally and linguistically diverse community groups who would like to develop creative projects that share their stories.

Dream Plan Do is a uniquely designed mentoring program for CaLD community groups who have not previously received government funding. Through Lotterywest Dream Plan Do, groups are able to access to funding to bring to life a community arts project, developing skills in project management, budgeting, arts production and management along the way.


  • Strong passion for engaging CaLD community groups and their cultures
  •  Strong organisational and communication skills and experience to work in complex community settings with an appreciation of community arts and cultural development
  • Commitment to a group learning environment and open communication, as well as strong interest in collaborations and strong networking and critical thinking skills
  • A high level of cross-cultural competence and understanding are desirable.


  • Dream Plan Do mentors will be involved in a group learning and sharing environment and will attend professional development workshops with community groups and other mentors
  • They will plan and deliver mentoring sessions to the community group they are paired with and attend key community group events throughout the program.


CAN and the Lotterywest Dream Plan Do team will be doing everything possible to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all those we work with. We are following the Australian Government’s social distancing recommendations and will be conducting all meetings via phone or video conference. We are also pursuing alternative ways of delivering mentoring and professional development workshops.
